Woolite Dry Cleaners Review - Dry Cleaning Clothes at Home

woolite dry clean at home For many years, I have been allergic to the dry cleaning chemicals that dry cleaners use to clean our clothes. Finding an easy alternative and being able to Dry Clean my own clothes at home, is truly fabulous and it is so very easy!

I have such a strong reaction to dry cleaners chemicals, that I simply stopped buying clothes that had to be dry cleaned. It just was not worth it no matter how beautiful the apparel was, or how much I really wanted something. Even the smell of dry cleaned clothes that someone else may be wearing, can cause me to get an extreme headache.

I am thrilled that I have discovered a way to dry clean my clothes at home and not get sick!  I have had so much success with this method, that I look for clothes to dry clean just so I can dance by my dryer.

Woolite Dry Cleaners Sheets

It may be seriously hard to believe, but dry cleaning your own clothes at home is as simple as throwing a piece of cloth in your dryer with your garment and turning on the dryer.

Additional Notes about Dry Cleaning this Particular Cape

I personally made this Dr. Orpheus Cosplay Costume Cape for my son for Halloween in 2013.   There is a large emblem on the back of the cape that I had to cut from satin fabric pieces.

The real beauty of the Woolite Sheets is that they did not fade or fray even the emblem.  It came out of the dryer clean and just as vibrantly beautiful as it was the day it was made.

Since I enjoy making specialty costumes, it is so very awesome to have a trustworthy method to dry clean them.  They are truly a lot more reliable than any dry cleaner and they don't leave strong chemical odor on the costumes or clothes.  They actually smell good!

Woolite Dry Cleaning Sheet Tests and Review Conclusion

Since Woolite is a name I have trusted all of my life, I did not hesitate to try their dry cleaning sheets.  After all, Woolite is the product I have used for decades to wash my cold water delicate fabrics.  I am thrilled beyond belief to now be able to wear clothes that have to be dry cleaned.   I love satins, silks, velvets, etc. and I missed having them as part of my wardrobe. 

Due to my personal allergies, I do use the Fragrance Free, but there are scented sheets available.

Have you tried either of the Woolite Dry Cleaner's Secret Products?

  1. I didn't realize that Woolite also made dry cleaner sheets. Very nice. A perfect solution. Think my wool Navy Peacoat would do well cleaned this way? I was about to take it to the dry cleaners as I'm currently on a Spring (now Summer) cleaning jag and found it in the coat closet. Will definitely check out this Dry Cleaners Secret by Woolite, a brand I've long trusted too.

    1. I have not personally used them on wool Elf, but they advertise that the sheets are safe for wool. I haven't found anything yet that they don't work well on. I even had a silk dress that I spilled tea on, I had to use their pretreat solution that comes in the box and I did start on it almost immediately, but after 2 cleaning cycles, the dress came out spotless. I doubt the cleaners would have been able to save that dress since the stain would have set a lot longer.

  2. I've never tried dry cleaner sheets and, like you, I just tend to shy away from clothes that need to be dry cleaned. Very, very glad that I read this review! Good chance there's something in my closet that I'm not wearing because it needs to be dry cleaned. I see this product in my future!

  3. I have used these sheets several times and I agree Cynthia, they are great. Much easier than making a run to the cleaners.

  4. I don't know what I still have around that needs to be dry-cleaned. I'm just wondering about the heat. My dryer doesn't have a medium setting. It has regular, delicate or air fluff. What I'm wondering is if the heat from the dryer itself might ruin some fabrics that the dry cleaner sheets themselves are save for. I've never seen this product -- mostly because until I read this I didn't know it existed. I'll have to look into it. Maybe the delicate setting is medium heat.

  5. I love the Woolite Dry Cleaners system. Great review.

  6. Wow! I hadn't heard of these! I have to try this Cynthia, thanks so much for the heads-up! Next shopping trip will include a box of these!

  7. Congrats on having this helpful article featured on 92.9 The Lake Louisiana radio website today!
